INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- The campaign of Indiana Libertarian Party gubernatorial candidate Rex Bell says he has suffered a minor stroke and is being treated at an Indianapolis hospital.

The 64-year-old Bell became ill Wednesday during an interview at the office of the Palladium-Item newspaper in Richmond. The newspaper reports he remained conscious and communicative before being taken to a local hospital.

Bell's campaign said Thursday that he was fully aware and coherent and was undergoing further testing at IU Health Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis. The campaign says Bell is expected to make a full recovery.

Fellow gubernatorial candidates Republican Eric Holcomb and Democrat John Gregg have both said they are praying for Bell's recovery.
